Description Sujith 2015-12-03 10:05:02 EST
Created attachment 1101825 [details]

Description of problem:
In a system having 16 disks, an exception aborts the RHEL-7.2 automatic installation when trying to install on the 16th disk i.e sdp.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a server with 16 disks in UEFI mode.
2. Start automatic installation using a kickstart which tries to partition/install on sdp
3. Exception is encountered.

Actual results:
Automatic Installation aborts.

Expected results:
Automatic Installation should be successful.

Additional info:
* This is mainly because the control-flow is entering into a wrong code-segment due to an overly inclusive regex controlling the control-flow entry.

It is fixed in blivet with the following patch:

Commit-id: 5a1c2d62b51e5e0ee752ec782f5db5b6f223a07a

Attaching the logs for reference.

Kickstart used for installation
Comment 3 Marek Hruscak 2016-07-15 08:21:07 EDT
I have reproduced it on RHEL-7.2RC on KVM VM with UEFI firmware(ovmf_x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd) with 16 disks, where 15 have 100M and 16th(vdp) have 6G. Modify ks.cfg to match disk names and installation size.
Comment 4 Sujith 2016-08-08 09:49:55 EDT
Can still observe the issue with python-blivet- present in RHEL-7.3-Alpha-1.
Please incorporate the patch mentioned in #Description.

Comment 8 Jakub Vavra 2016-09-13 04:07:10 EDT
Fix verified on snapshot 3 (RHEL-7.3-20160908.3).
Comment 9 Sujith 2016-09-14 01:04:00 EDT
Snapshot-2 contains python-blivet-
We shall verify once the Snapshot-3 builds are available to us.
